About
O by Kissaki


O by Kissaki's mission is to honor and share traditional Japanese cuisine with the world. Expanding beyond the omakase focus of Kissaki's flagship, O focuses on otsumami (small plates), kushimono (skewered foods), hot ingredients fresh of the robata grill, and sushi served alongside craft cocktails and sake. Each dish is mindfully sourced and designed to take diners on a culinary exploration through their senses.

Executive Chef Mark Garcia cultivates this one-of-a-kind experience where everyone feels at home. With a variety of both raw and cooked fish throughout the menu, O by Kissaki serves classics, traditional and specialty Maki, and Chef Mark’s specialty nigiri.

Owner Garry Kanfer is a serial entrepreneur, founder, and a father of three. Kanfer is the founder of Big Drop, a full-service digital agency, servicing Fortune 500 clients. Known for building brands and designing world-class digital experiences, Big Drop was integral to the creation of the Kissaki brand. As a self-described “sushi addict”, launching a one-of-a-kind omakase experience was the natural next step for Kanfer. When COVID-19 hit NYC, Kanfer spearheaded Kissaki’s overnight transformation to a rapid production take-out model and now has expanded to open Kissaki locations in NoHo, the Upper West Side, Long Island City, Water Mill and Greenwich, CT.  This is in addition to opening summer pop ups in Montauk and on the Gansevoort Rooftop.
